Canadians with higher levels of literacy, numeracy and problem solving skills generally report better health and stronger connections with their communities and society. This is a key finding from The Health and Social Dimensions of Adult Skills in Canada, a report released in February 2018 by the Public Health Agency of Canada and the Council of Ministers of Education, Canada

This webinar outlined key findings and implications from the report on relationships among adult skills, health and social well-being. This evidence can importantly inform research, policy and interventions across sectors to improve health and well-being through action on social determinants of health.
